Imagine the worse thing you could do. How far would you go to redeem yourself? THE REDEMPTION OF THOMAS HAS HIS HORSE is the story of a half-Sioux, half-African-American man born on the Pine Ridge Reservation in 1918 ~ and his struggle to atone for a terrible act. Beloved of the Spirits and pride of his Grandmother Grace, his Great-Uncle Owen begins training him from a young age to become the family's next medicine man. But when a series of foolhardy choices leads to such a catastrophic event that even his devoted grandmother urges him to run, 19-year-old Thomas must flee his home in the Badlands, never to return. After a lonely, arduous trek through the heart of the 1930's dust bowl, Thomas finds improbable sanctuary in a tiny little town in the Texas Hill Country. For 25 years, the black Indian lives in self-imposed exile amid white townsfolk who believe that he is nothing more than a half-witted, colored helper at the local grocery store. Then one hot summer day in 1962, the Spirits suddenly come calling again ~ and Thomas begins a journey of redemption that spans more than three decades, and reverberates from his room in the back of the Hill Country store to a psychiatric hospital in lower Manhattan, where Dr. Anna Johannsen uses unorthodox methods with unprecedented success to repair the shattered lives of child torture victims. But when a Catholic nun asks the gifted psychiatrist to take the horrific case of 10-year-old Oscar Werner, the doctor runs up against a wall of ancient evil and turns to Thomas Has His Horse for help ~ and the 80-year-old man must summon all of the power that is in him to save the child and his doctor.
